Welcome Home Teppo Campaign 2012

As you all know, Teppo Numminen plays an important role in the lives of the nervoustime crew. A fellow Cancerian, he has always been and will always be Rebecca's favourite hockey player of all time. He was the classiest Jet (original franchise), and now he's the classiest assistant defense coach around. Harlequin's reinterpreted song "Numminen: he's all we ever needed" sums up our views on Teppo. He really is all we ever needed.

When Teppo returned with the Sabres on Jan 19 (Wpg 4: Buffalo 1), he received no public accolades or 'shout-outs'. Where was the love? We don't know. Shame on Winnipeg! Shame on the Jets!

On March 5th when Teppo returns for the 2nd Buffalo-Winnipeg game, we need to show him our city's gratitude for his years of service. And Rebecca needs to add a fresh signature to her Numminen game-worn jersey (the signature from 1996 has faded). We'll try to figure out how to make that happen...

But in the meantime, we need your help Winnipeg in honouring our defensive superstar. Let's start a "Teppo" chant. We want to see Teppo signs in the crowd. How about airing a little video montage on the screens? Or even better airing the Harlequin song? Who's with me? Let us not forget our other Finnish hero!


ps. Kenny G and B-Town will be in section 217 thanks to the wonders of chance & opportunity.

pps: check out our friend Aynsley's blog about home renos - she's hilarious:
